This morning dawned dull and gloomy, and stayed that way! We set off from Norbury Junction at around 9.30, heading for Market Drayton. It was a chilly journey, it must have been, because I had to resort to my silly hat – and no, you’re not seeing a photo of me in it – I look ridiculous!!
Just after Grub Street Cutting is the Anchor Inn, famous for selling Wadworth 6X from a jug brought up from the cellar, and not much else, no food, just a bag of crisps if you are lucky. Local boaters ‘in the know’ delight in misleading tourists (Yanks mostly), telling of the wonderful fine dining and the huge choice of cocktails available here!
We are now moored in Market Drayton for the night – and it’s still dull, cloudy and cold! Lets hope for a nicer day tomorrow.
